I dry 2 inch thick walnut live edge slabs. I drilled two small holes in the middle of my board (to get penetration into the wood with my pin type moisture meter). The middle of my board reads 12%...the outer edge reads 5%.
The dehumidifier has RH range is 30% – 85%. The dehumidifier is not taking out anymore moisture – the outlet hose is completely dry.
Have I dried the wood all I can with this dehumidifier? Do I buy another dehumidifier the can maintain RH below 30%?
My kiln is 10’ x 4’ and 5’ high…and I followed your plans…I have four strong fans in it. These slabs were air dried for 6 months and have been in the kiln for about 4 weeks.
The slabs in the kiln now will be made into a table that will be shipped to the Midwest (Chicago).
Can you give any input?...any help is greatly appreciated.
